Panasonic SC-RB5 Bluetooth Speaker review

Tuesday, 20 September 2016

It's an integral part of my life, it can transform your mood, the atmosphere of a party / room and even take you back to the best and worst parts of your life. Music has changed dramatically over the years from Vinyl to cassettes, to CDs to now where most people stream all their music online.

I tend to listen to the majority of my music through spotify on my phone which is fine if I want to listen solo but the speakers are no good for sharing music with friends, step forward the Panasonic SC-RB5

Panasonic SC-RB5 Bluetooth Speaker review

Weight: 0.5kg
Diameter: Less than 10cm
Height: Less than 6cm
Price: £79.99

This little beauty uses very clever technology called 'Resonance Bass' which basically means it vibrates through the base onto the surface it's sitting on thus amplifying both the bass and volume. It also changes the sound based on what you've placed it on

The device itself is ridiculously easy to set up and took me less than a minute to synch the bluetooth between the speaker and my iphone, I also love that you can connect numerous speakers together to further boost the sound.

The device is ultra sleek and cute with a black and silver theme with blue lighting detail. The bottom blue line actually flashes in time with your music which looks fab. With a range of around 10 meters and a battery life of up to 12 hours it's perfect for all those summer occasions from BBQ's to Beach parties just pop it in your bag and place on a solid surface once you're there

I think while the price is a little high, you're getting far superior quality when compared to others on the market especially as it's also splash proof with the resonance bass capability. It's built to last and has certainly got me blasting music out in the sunshine we've been enjoying

What would you play first?

  3. Oh this is clever! We have a system of wireless Panasonic speakers but I love the idea of something more portable.
    Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x

    1. It's perfect for BBQ's and picnics

  4. I like the sound of this! I hate how low the music is on my phone and this would be great for when we have our family bbq's at my mums in the summer #triedtested
